Based on observed data. I use scientific programming tools R, and also generic ones, such as C, Java and Python, to perform data analysis. The specific tool I choose for a project largely depends on the existing code base, since I get bored easily and not a fan of repetition.

You can find my softwares listed under projects. All of them are open source and hosted on GitHub. I also have generated a thin collection of datasets in research. Some of them may be useful to you, and they are listed under the data folder.

You can read more about me, and my blog. Commenting is enabled on my blog posts, and you can leave a comment there.

Just a friendly reminder:

Each day, 80k acres of forests are disappearing ...

So think about that when you try to print something next time.
